Stan Musial

1985 Baseball Digest Cover featuring Cardinal Hall of Fame players

Baseball Digest 1984 Annual Guide

Three illustrations I created of St.Louis Cardinals Baseball Players. The painting of Stan hung in the St.Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame museum in the 1990’s.

    John, these had to have been fun projects. They sure turned out well. And now it’s time for the “boys of summer” to do their thing again!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They were fun Glenn. I did two covers of Baseball Digest and black and white portraits of the players and coaches of the 1982 World Champion Baseball Cardinals. A former employee of Maritz, Jack Francis had a professional relationship with Marty Hendin who was in charge of promotions for the Cardinals. Jack made a proposal to create a catalog for Stan Musial in the early 1990’s. I did three paintings of Stan for this project. Stan decided he didn’t need a catalog. He did sign a color print of one of these paintings. One painting hung the Cardinals Hall of Fame at the old Busch Stadium for about eight years.
